2020 NANETS Call for Abstracts

The North American Neuroendocrine Tumor Society (NANETS) is pleased to announce that abstracts are now being accepted for the NANETS Multidisciplinary NET NET Medical Virtual Symposium, October 2-3.

NANETS is committed to furthering neuroendocrine tumor disease diagnosis, treatment and management through research and education. With over 15,000 new patients diagnosed with NETs each year, there is a continuing need to support NET research and advance the dissemination of vital research findings.

NANETS' Annual Multidisciplinary NET Medical Symposium represents an excellent opportunity to present research relevant to cutting edge topics in neuroendocrine tumor research. Medical researchers at institutions in North America and around the world are invited to submit abstracts.

NANETS encourages abstract reporting on recent NET research and/or describing ongoing or current clinical trials with the intent of increasing awareness of these studies. Investigators may submit abstracts that have been presented at other scientific meetings and/or published in scientific journals since October 1, 2019. 

Abstracts are reviewed and scored by NANETS’ Scientific Review & Research Committee of NET medical research experts, and selected to be shown in poster sessions or as oral abstract presentations at the NANETS 2020 Multidisciplinary NET Disease Symposium. Ten to twelve oral abstracts will be selected for presentation in two education sessions at Symposium.  

Accepted categories are as follows. You will be required to select the primary category during the submission process. Reviewers may modify the category after submission. Note that case reports are not accepted.

    1. Basic Science
    2. Applied Basic Science
    3. Chemo/SSA/Biologics (Clinical)
    4. Nuclear Medicine/Interventional Radiology/Imaging (Clinical)
    5. Surgical/Applied Pathology (Clinical)
    6. Population Science
    7.  Other
